TLD April Intel: A Monthly Roundup Of Intelligence To Help You Live The Life Delicious!


Intelligence: the ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills.


Spring has sprung, and the sun is shining as I write this (and baby naps)!

More daylight and more sunshine make such a difference to my mood.

You too?

Mood (the way you feel) is always on my mind, as is mindset (the way you think) – and how much power we have to influence both. 

I created The Life Delicious curriculum following a very dark period in my life. 

I struggled with negative thinking, sedentary behaviour, an unhealthy diet, poor sleep hygiene, and loneliness for years. 

When things began to turn around – when I became happier, healthier and more productive – I reverse engineered how I'd arrived, realized there was a reproducible strategy to it, packaged it into a shareable form, and called it The Life Delicious!

Practically EVERY DAY I return to these principles, review and practice them.

It's not a one-time thing to go to the gym, be grateful, take a breath before you retort, or eat a salad!

Your health, happiness and productivity are a summation of small, consistent practices. 

But once you do the work of establishing healthy habits, it's almost effortless. 


The Life Delicious curriculum helps you hardwire healthy habits, so they're automatic, with mindfulness-based, science-backed strategies that cover 5 in-depth modules:

  • Mindset

  • Movement

  • Nutrition

  • Sleep

  • Connection 

Imagine the ease with which you could live if you thought better, moved more, ate better, slept better, and connected more deeply. 

I'm as excited as ever to share my work because I don't have to imagine the ease anymore, I'm living it!

And I want you to live it to. 

The caveat: as a new parent, my business has shifted.

How I share my time has changed.

For now, I'd like to offer more shorter and local events (in addition to a small selection of overnight retreats at incredible locations). 

This is where I'd love YOUR thoughts!

  • would you prefer a series of 90-minute, half-day or full-day events in Vancouver?
  • would you prefer weekdays or weekends? morning, afternoon or evening?
  • do you know of an amazing venue in Vancouver that's food-friendly, totally private, and comfortably fits 12-25 people? 

Thank you so much for sharing.

Okay, now to the INTEL! Happy reading/listening/watching!
